Performed by a beauty tech and skin savant of 23 years, the microdermabrasion treatments at Just for You Spa and Salon impart visages with a glowing veneer and a healthy, rejuvenated outlook. A thorough skin consultation kick-starts the 60-minute deluxe microdermabrasion and determines which dermal detriments are the most in need of healing. The skin technician then wields a diamond-tipped wand that gently abrades and removes the top layer of skinscape–a method seen as safer for delicate skin around the eyes nose and mouth than traditional microdermabrasion. Hyperpigmentation calms down, sun damage retreats to intracellular time-out, and minor scars and fine wrinkles quietly disappear, like the original Aunt Vivian on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air . Those who opt for the microdermabrasion package return to the candle-lit, earth-tone-tinted treatment room for two more 30-minute, noninvasive sessions. Each treatment involves no down time, so customers can continually exit the spa with skin that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.
Certified technician Kelly MacDonald knows firsthand the transformative power of modern skincare technology. After receiving successful treatments herself, she decided to pursue a career in med-spa services, studying with surgeon-turned-researcher Dr. Yousef Shihab at the Cosmedic Laser Institute in Vancouver. MacDonald is now the owner and operator of Neos Wellness Spa, a joint venture undertaken with her fiancé. She uses her practice as a platform to directly share her experiences with others instead of through impersonal skywriting. MacDonald fulfills that mission by keeping fingers on the pulse of the latest products and aesthetic developments in laser, radio-frequency, and ultrasound technology. Her spa features an entire staff of employees that are all physician-trained. After a complimentary consultation to discuss each patient's goals, she recommends the best approach to address acne and spider veins or fine lines and other signs of aging. MacDonald employs the multi-function laser's intense pulsed light to disable follicles and remove hair. To target excess weight, she performs radio-frequency treatments and ultrasonic wave techniques that shrink fat cells so much, Rick Moranis couldn't find them in his backyard.

Tall windows flood the lobby with natural light, illuminating leather couches and shelves lined with Viviere Skin Care products. A textured stone wall stands behind the front desk, and a wall fountain fills the air with a peaceful babbling.
